As a Human Resources practitioner, I see and regulary review resumes …. LOTS of resumes! And imagine, some people even paid good money to have their’s developed by professional resume writers.
After years of reviewing resumes from people in all walks of life, seeking jobs in just about every career field, I adopted a mantra that I still opine today: “DON’T PAY SOMEONE TO DO WHAT YOU CAN DO JUST AS WELL YOURSELF!” All you need is a wee bit of guidance and you’ll be able to effectively communicate your experience and education to satisfy just about every Staffing specialist!
Rather than reinvent the wheel, take a look at the “5 Worst Government Resume Mistakes” compiled by Jason Kay in a FedSmith article published 3/21/2012. He has good ideas and gives great advice!
And remember … when in doubt, ask a Human Resources Specialist for help. Many of us are more than willing and well-equipped to review your resume and give you the feedback that will help you better present yourself to Federal hiring officials in the best light possible and in the most succinct manner.
